27: A year of change.

The age of 27 is such a weird age. 27 is the start of your late 20’s and while you’re still holding on to your youth, you are in fear of turning 30. yes you will still party but now it’s more toned down in fact you don’t feel the need to party as often as you did in you’re early 20’s. At 27, you buckle down and become more serious with your goals and where you want to see yourself 27 years from now. You look back at your life and wonder if the choices you made were really your own. You wonder if the career you are currently in or the job you are currently working is the best fit for you. You might get a lil envious seeing engagement or pregnancy announcements but it doesn’t it will not happen for you eventually. And if it doesn’t your life isn’t in shambles.

In Astrology, 27 is considered “Saturn’s return”, which starts in your late 20’s and ends in your early 30’s. This means that you start to put away childish things and truly become more mature. Once Saturns’ return ends you not only become more wiser and you are on the path you need to be on.

In numerology, you have to add the numbers of your birthday (9+5=14), then add the numbers in the current year (2+0+2+1=5) and then you add the two answers you got (14+5=19) and then add the numbers until you get a single digit number (1+9= 10) (1+0=1). I did this I ended up with the number one. In numerology, the number 1 is the root towards opportunity in our lives. If you get a 1, it symbolizes power and taking action. Number one encourages you to embrace new beginnings and take control of your future. With all this numerology and astrology talk you might be wondering what I’m trying to do here.

The song “landslide” by Stevie Nicks was a song about the changes and challenges of life. When Stevie Nicks wrote this song she was 27. I feel some of the lyrics truly reflects how 27 feels. This year I will be turning 27, I actually turn 27 a month from today and I’m feeling all sorts of emotions. Feelings of life being at a standstill because of the depression and psychotic break that made me graduate from college 3 years later. The darkness that I felt that thinking that I would never see 25. Things are starting to become brighter for me now. I know people say that every birthday is transformational but I truly believe 27 will put my life in the trajectory of where I should be. And as I enter into my 27 year, I can’t help but to reflect on my life. to think about all my life choices, the choices that was “forced” on me, my dark days and my good days. I think of all the things that I was able to overcome. and I overcame a lot considering that most of my teachers from secondary education didn’t even think I would make it passed the first semester.

Now, I’m not gonna tell you all about what I’ve been through, I’m not gonna tell you a sad story of a girl with a horrible life because my life wasn’t really that horrible but it wasn’t all that great. For most of my 20’s and my college career, I was in my darkest hour but my darkest hour made me realize that I’m a lot stronger than I thought I was. This past year I received my bachelors degree, which was something I thought I would never accomplish. However, because my college career wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be I actually grew to hate the major that I was in and never took it seriously., I only cared enough to pass and my GPA went from a 3.1 and I graduated with a 2.4. this pandemic made me realize that I actually that holding a camera isn’t what I want to do. I don’t dream of being in a newsroom or working in media, in fact its very draining. I’m thinking of becoming a lawyer.

I have started on a course in paralegal studies in order for me to get a paralegal certificate. I’ll work in a law office for 6 months to a year before I go back for a second bachelors degree in History with a minor in Gender Studies. Then right after that I’ll take my LSAT and go to Law School. I already have two in mind. I probably won’t become a lawyer until I’m probably in my early 30’s but hey, better late than never right?

Hopefully, this time next year I’ll be making blog post on my start in my legal career as a paralegal.
